MKC recently completed a feasibility study regarding the Central School building in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. The local newspaper recently published an article regarding the existing school, report, and recommendations:

An in-depth report by MKC Architects shows that the former Central School on East Chestnut Street is structurally sound and worthy of preserving. The preservation price is estimated to be $3.86 million.

“They really did an all-encompassing number for us, which is good because that’s what we asked them to do,” said Jason Booth, county administrator. “They said it is definitely structurally sound. The exterior is really well maintained. They felt it was worth saving… And I think we did, too. That was our hope when we set out on it, that it was good enough to keep.”

The purpose of the $10,000 study was to give the commissioners a “road map” as to whether to move forward with renovations on the 79-year-old building.
